ICYMI: Dr. Eric Bing Writes Access to Medical Care is Key to Saving Lives

May 21, 2013 by Eric G. Bing

Eric G. Bing, MD, PhD, MBA, Director of Global Health at the George W. Bush Institute and Professor at Southern Methodist University, along with Marc J. Epstein, PhD, Distinguished Research Professor of Management at Jones Graduate School of Business at Rice University, write in Forbes today that Angelina Jolie’s recent decision to have a preventative double mastectomy should serve as a reminder that we must look to help women in developing countries who lack access to basic medical care.
